    Real Stubborn, Un-Movable Mystery Drive Letter


    Win 10 Home, Version 19042.928 Ressurected and repaired a HP laptop, installed fresh copy of Win 10 Home. LT has two drives C: OS & D: storage. On installing and checking OS installation, a drive letter appeared, E:, it's tiny in size, 99.2 mb, it's used for something but I cannot hide it. It doesn't affect anything, it is just there and bugging me, silly really but would like to make it go away. Tried many things and MS had a go and failed. Their conclusion was on installation of OS it created a drive letter for a hidden partition, ( possibly HP ), and was just a glitch but nothing they could do about it. I don't think I mind it being in the system so long as it is nothing nefarious, I would like to hide it, like to know what it contains too but that maybe pushing it None of the usual remedies have had an effect including those of MS. I can't see this drive letter in disk management. See images.

    :)

    The OP's drive E: should be the EFI system partition, which should not have a drive letter.
    The following is my EFI system partition, which has no drive letter.
